A gorgeous sunburst dreadnought, crafted in Canada with LR Baggs Electronics.
This Seagull 12-String Artist Series Studio Dreadnought Guitar is an acoustic-electric that features LR Baggs i-Beam electronics and a gorgeous high-gloss custom polished burst finish on both the body and the bound headstock. Like all Seagull Artist series models, Studio Bursts are proudly and meticulously crafted in Canada. These guitars are artfully created in a secluded acoustic studio, where some of the finest luthiers in the business bring them to life. The on-board LR Baggs i-Beam electronics let you sound your best on any stage.
Sound and feel are where Seagull Artist Series guitars really distinguish themselves. The clear bottom end response arrives with plenty of punch and provides a suitable foundation to the harmonically rich sound that sits on top.
These guitars will look familiar to Seagull enthusiasts, the straight-pull headstock remains—now adorned with a new 'Artist' logo —and the standard Seagull body shape has been altered only slightly with a narrower waist. All models are made with solid backs and sides. The impact of solid sides on the sound of a guitar is virtually immeasurable.
The compound curve top concept was originally developed for the Seagull Artist Series guitars and it is in these models that the new design really proves itself. The Artist Series luthiers choose from the very best of a stockpile that includes over a hundred thousand, luthier-grade, solid cedar and spruce boards. In fact, all of the tone woods for the Artist Series are hand-selected to ensure that the very highest standards are met. The scalloped bracing is designed to such precise tolerances that it requires a CNC milling machine to carve the individual pieces to the exact specifications. The finished instruments speak with incredible clarity and character — and that's before they open up. These guitars develop an even deeper character when 'played-in' and will no doubt become lifelong companions to those who choose them.
LR Baggs has pioneered the concept of combining an undersaddle transducer (Ribbon Transducer) with a revolutionary bridge plate transducer (iBeam). The i-Beam Duet blends the iBeam and Ribbon Transducer signals with an onboard preamp featuring a very sophisticated set of controls for mixing and equalization. This is the ultimate in onboard acoustic amplification.
